Nice place, very elegant and modern, with nice jazz music playing in background. Food was great, we enjoyed everything, we had nice italian red wine as well. Service was professional, I would recommend this place.

This must be a little new, as very few people knew where is is located. Our friends were very late as they were directed wrong several time. The staff was very understanding and gave us a glass of sparkling wine while we waited. Food very good as was the wine. The only complaint was that the room is small and... More

This restaurant was very close to our hotel Best Western Ai Cavalieri. It was recommended by the hotel staff and exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent, the staff was extremely nice and friendly. We used to think that in general the Sicily's kitchen is somewhat plane and simple, but this one was actually great. They offer small appetizers and... More

We stayed at Ai Cavallero hotel next door and just got a table without reservation. We were warmly greeted and after our order we got a appetizer(wonderful) with a prosecco free of charge. The food and service was wonderful and we would highly recommend this small but good place.

Great meal but felt we could have been dining in Carrick-on-Shannon/Dublin/Dundalk anywhere else in Europe - lacked the ambience we experienced everywhere else in & around Palermo..

Great food, charming service and delicious food. I went to this restaurant for the good reviews in tripadvisor and it was just as classified. We were delighted with the service and the food.

When I say sophisticated and refined I am not only referring to the food. True, this restaurant offers a wide array of traditional and revisited versions of Sicilian cuisine as well other day specials, based on what they bought in the market that day. The decoration is clean, the restaurant is well lit and the music - mostly jazz -... More

This is deservedly a popular restaurant. We were welcomed with a glass of bubbly wine and given time and advice. As we wanted to share a starter ( vg ) they served it in two dishes. My wife had bream and vegetables which she said was her beast meal in Syria. So was my Angus steak with lovely sauce And... More

Tasteful decor with a jazz theme, we ordered a fish and a steak mains. We were treated to an appetiser and prosecco while waiting. Both mains were well presented, beautifully prepared and generous. I had the Black Angus, delicious with a good sauce and lightly cooked veg. Desserts were decorative and appetising. Overall a great find and good value.

As usual when a place has such good reviews on TA our expectations were high, but not fulfilled in this case unfortunately. Service and ambience is ok, but food is average at best. We had most of the specials of the day, only good thing was octopus caponata, the pasta with fish and 3 tomatoes we had was so so,... More
